While contemporary architecture has gotten a lot of press in recent years, the traditional home is certainly not down for the count. It's making a comeback in the form of the Modern Farmhouse.
In fact, this style has been shaping up as one of the hottest current design trends. Rather than an official style, however, it's more a way of thinking in which the designer thoughtfully combines traditional exteriors with covered front porches and interior spaces configured for the way people live today. But those interiors reject the minimalist lines of contemporary design, opting for a warm, relaxing aesthetic that recalls a - presumably - less hectic past.
In other words, Modern Farmhouse style is the epitome of transitional architecture.
